At least 4,941,032 people worldwide have been infected with the corona virus since the WHO office in China launched the disease at the end of December 2019, according to a report established by AFP from official sources at noon on Sunday.
More than 243,270,300 infections have been officially diagnosed since the onset of the epidemic. Most patients recover, but the more poorly assessed area retains symptoms for weeks or even months.
Taking into account the high number of deaths directly and indirectly linked to Covit-19, the WHO estimates that the outcome of the epidemic may be two to three times higher than officially recorded.
As of Saturday, 6,072 new deaths and 394,025 new cases had been reported worldwide. Russia has the highest number of deaths at 1,072, followed by the United States (590) and India (561).
The United States is the most affected country in both deaths and cases, with 735,801 deaths for 45,427,539 cases, according to Johns Hopkins University estimates.
The United States is followed by Brazil with 605,457 deaths and 21,723,559 cases, India with 454,269 deaths (34,175,468 cases), Mexico with 286,259 deaths (3,781,661 cases), and Russia with 23,46000 (446000 people).
1,514,642 deaths for 45,718,783 cases in Latin America and the Caribbean at noon on Sunday, 1,373,413 deaths (72,449,471 cases) in Europe, 862,678 deaths (55,455,754 cases), 262,678 deaths (2,45,455,753 cases in Mi).
